Fayette County

A different way to farm and to live

Fayette County residents Nicole and Scott Tyson are right at home on their small non-profit organic farm near Sharpsburg. The couple on their new farm grow organic fruits and vegetables and practice rotational grazing with the turkeys, sheep and chickens. The name of the operation, the 180-degree Farm, is illustrative of the concept that contradicts the long-held norm in farming. Scott and Nicole use no chemicals and everything is natural.

Standing on their small farm off Ga. Highway 154 near Sharpsburg last Saturday morning, Scott and Nicole Tyson surveyed the small acreage that is home to the couple’s non-profit 180-degree Farm. The name of the farm makes sense, considering that their approach to farming is the diametric opposite of what has become the accepted norm. Read More»
